This show I'm sorry to say beats the hell out of Barton Hall on any day of the week. Not a big fan of the song loser, but this one is awesome.

This is the best Lazy Lightning / Supplication version that I have heard.

Really Great show
Not too much to say about May '77 that hasn't already been said. I just wanted to point out that I love how high up in the mix Charlie has Keith here. I just love the sound of his keys and feels he get's buried far too often.

Really Nice Show
It's not Boston Garden or Barton but most of May was damn near perfect and this one was really good. They sounded just a little tired and played a softer show than some of the other dates that month. It had a kind of jazzy sound as someone before me said. I haven't listened to this one in quite a while.....there are so many it's impossible to remember the various nuances of the shows that you don't listen to more frequently. While I can't rate it a top 10 it is certainly in the top 50 list. That makes it a clear 5 star.

Oh, the beauty.
if memory serves, i was at this show.
To say this was one of the best from 77 would be an understatement.
great sound quality

Never saw 'em, but I love 'em!
I was 16 when Jerry died, so alas I never had the chance to see the Dead together, but I became a staunch fan in college and have tried to see what remains in Bob Weir and Phil Lesh when possible...booking my ticket to Outside Lands in August as I write this.
I just discovered this site and this show was the first I checked out...it's a beauty! Jealous of all of you who were present.

33 Years ago today
I drove from DC with my buddy John, huge buds and tasty brewers. After Jerry's solo in MHUT I knew I was in for a real treat. Of the 30 shows I have seen this was the most amazing. Cornell gets all the press but this was the shit!!!!

Better than Barton?
In a month characterized by laser precise musicianship and packed with phenomenal performances, this one might be a bit more jazzy and the playing a touch more creative.
The Other One suite here is as close to Dark Star as the band got in 1977...
